The Angriest Man in Brooklyn -- 8.5/10

I dunno why I had so much fun with it -- maybe it's all the arguing going on -- but it's funny to watch. The part where. Milan Kunis beats up the taxi driver is my favorite.

I was really close to renting that last night...glad to hear you enjoyed it that much. I may check it out tonight.

I know both of these have already been talked about, but I need to chime-in and say that I just saw both Chef (in the theater) and The Station Agent (Netflix) - and I loved both of them! I can't believe it took me so long to see The Station Agent. Chef has to be the best "feel good" movie I have seen in a very long time - I came out of the theater really feeling darn good about life - and I was hungry as hell!

Station Agent is one of my favorite films of all time. Great flick.

I still have no idea what the hell this movie is about... but it looks very cool, sounds even better and has been enjoyable to watch! Still no idea what's happening... I think it's some kind of meaning of life thing... either way it's a visual and audible treat! 

 

I've seen this a few months ago...

It's the only movie that I'm unable to rate yet. I need to see more stuff from Malick before making up my mind.

Argo was a beautiful movie.

Planet Earth - 10/10

 

Best with a 100' HDTV and on blu-ray of course. I've now seen this two times.

It's a little less impressive on my 37" Wal-Mart LCD, but still good. I gave away my 46" Sony Wega XBR3 to a friend when I was moving. How dumb is that!!

I guess that's the disadvantage of apartment living. No home theater system anymore. Oh and TV speaker sound! Yuck. Sometimes I use headphones though.

 

The sequel called "Life" is also good, but the next one called "Human Planet" was a bit disappointing (but worth watching).

 

I hope they keep making these every few years.

 

NOTE: Get the version with David Attenborough doing the commentary. It's the original BBC version and easy to find.

 

Everyone should watch this at least once. It's that good.

BBC is making many good documentaries. Check out blue planet also :)

Chef - 6.5/10

 

OK, I kind of feel a bit bad rating this one so low. It's one of those movies where you might need a couple days to figure out exactly WHY you didn't love it.

I guess part of the problem is that it wasn't very interesting to me. I got bored of it and just wanted it to end. Hard to believe, I know!

 

Didn't really like the main character much and liked the smaller roles better (except for the one with "Iron Man"..what the heck was that all about?!)

 

The guy from "Station Agent" needed more screen time.

 

BTW I think I gave that one a 9.5 or so.

 

It seems like in this one they had so much excessive dialogue, it's if they're were trying to hide the thin storyline. I usually love moves with lots of talking, but here they should have learned to shut up a little more.

 

Hate to say this, but I might have liked this one more if a more experienced actor got the lead role. I mean Jon Favreau was OK, but that's it.

 

Also, the movie is just not that funny. Need a little more comedy I think. The one scene involving corn starch should have been cut out. Pretty stupid "joke".

 

Another BTW...I miss all those old character driven Lawrence Kasden movies. The best ones were with William Hurt. Loved "Accidental Tourist" and most all of the others.

 

Funny to think that I went to see this mainly because it's a little different than all the rest of the Hollywood crap and Jon Favreau's "Elf" is one of my all time favorite movies. No kidding!

 

LOL I kept hoping Peter Dinklage would show up. I really liked him in "Station Agent", who is a total opposite of his character in "Elf". I can't even imagine what he's like in "Game of Thrones"!

 

I imagine that show is really gory with millions of F words and tons of sex scenes. Typical HBO stuff maybe?

 

Best scenes where those with John Leguizamo in them actually! Jon seemed to do better when he was with a lot of other characters. All the scenes with Dustin Hoffman were good too.

I'm also a foodie, so I enjoyed all the food and cooking scenes as well. That part of the movie was very real. I also think Scarlett Johansson was very hot.
post #15765 of 19951

BTW..I really need to watch "Tampopo" again. That's a good movie about food (noodles). The director Juzo Itami has made quite a lot of good movies. One of them is a favorite called "Minbo: The Gentle Art of Japanese Extortion".

 

It's not about food, but this reminds me that I also need to rewatch "Chungking Express". Sounds silly, but one of the few reasons I went to Hong Kong before on vacation is that I was once a huge fan of their movies. I'm really outdated on current HK movies. I also miss watching South Korean films regularly. Too expensive to buy really..
